Spartans seize Livonia girls golf title

By

The Livonia Stevenson girls golf team got its season off to a sizzling start Friday when it captured first place in the Livonia Girls Golf City Tournament held at Whispering Willows Golf Course.

The Spartans racked up 12 points in a unique event that featured scramble, alternate-shot, best-ball and stroke-play formats.

Livonia Churchill placed second with seven points while Livonia Franklin finished third with five points.

Teams were rewarded three points for winning a format and two points for taking second. The Spartans placed first in all four categories.

Megan Gronau and Rachel Crachiola combined for a 107 to win the stroke play. Franklin’s Carly Culp and Breanna Campau carded a combined score of 123 to nip Churchill’s Marin McGowan and Kaila Howard by one shot.

The best-ball title went to Stevenson’s Kristen Szabelski and Jess Crachiola, who fired a 47, eight shots lower than Churchill’s Alyssa Mazur and Paige Peterson.

In the alternate-shot competition, Stevenson’s Jackie Green and Anna Vento reigned with a score of 48, which was 14 shots better than the runner-up Chargers’ twosome of Jackie Haddad and Kristen McLean.

Danielle Marzec and Madi Maurier finished off the sweep for the champs by winning the scramble with a score of 44.
